BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A House committee has introduced sweeping tax legislation raising Idaho’s sales tax to the highest in the nation as part of a plan to eliminate most property taxes on owner-occupied homes. The House Revenue and Taxation Committee on Friday approved a possible hearing on the bill that also uses some of the increased sales tax money to raise the grocery sales tax credit from $100 to $175. The bill would boost Idaho’s sales tax from 6% to 7.85%. The Tax Foundation group says that would make Idaho’s the highest in the nation, above current No. 1 California. Idaho city, county, and other taxes would be eliminated on primary residences.
